Senior Department for Transport official misleads on aviation safety

At a ’roundtable’ table discussion on 13/11/18 about the forthcoming UK government Green Paper on aviation strategy, the head of aviation strategy Catherine Adams said there is “absolutely no compromise on safety”.

This is patently untrue – the new Heathrow runway that DfT isĀ  promoting – pointing at the heart of the UK’s biggest conurbation – poses an obvious extra risk to people on the ground. See page on safety (danger).
